You mean, shrink the number of representatives sent to Washington by each state?

Nah you can checkmate corruption without decreasing the size of it. For example, you can have more nonpartisan influence in the electoral process, involving people redrawing district lines and putting an end to gerrymandering. You can set term limits and force politicians to stop sucking the COCKS of every corp that donates to them.

Then you go after the corporations and take money out of politics and you take away their monopoly over modern society. Government in its true form should be an agent for the people, something that only exists to give power to the will of its citizens.

I'd argue that smaller government isn't necessarily the way to go because regardless of whether or not free health care and social security, or the department of education was a thing, this politician would still be corrupted.

The reason why the government is shit isn't because it's so big, but that people don't care and they don't bother to inform themselves or invest in movements that do care.

So making companies and monopolies bigger will shrink corruption?

I realize that she is a senator's daughter, but this is strictly a business decision, made by a corporation. The only way to stop practices like these are 1) regulation, 2) a change in patent laws that allows pharma companies to pull shit like this, or 3) some sort of class action lawsuit (which may not even be possible given the current laws, and would certainly be prohibitively expensive).

2 of those 3 options require government intervention. Laws and oversight. It's not like I disagree that the government is bloated and wildly inefficient, but it is, at least nominally, meant to protect the interests of its citizens. Corporations have no such obligation. They are purely money making machines, and are formed such that no individual within any given company really faces any risk, no matter how immoral or illegal their business practices are.

It honestly just blows my mind that people can condemn the government, and condemn unions, yet have nothing to say about monopolies and massive corporate greed and scummy business practices.

How do you read a story like this and go "well this is clearly the government's fault." Who else do you expect to regulate pharmas? Or telecoms? Or any other major monopolistic corporation? Should we expect to have to create a class action lawsuit for every single one of these unjust price hikes?

I mean, the only reason we're seeing this story on here at all is because people actually know what a fucking epi-pen IS. How about the hundreds or thousands of other, slightly more obscure or niche medicines that are being price hiked by hundreds or thousands of times? Who exactly has the power to stop these abuses, save the government?

Not that I expect it to, mind you. As long as the money = speech Supreme Court ruling stays active, campaigns are staggeringly expensive, and lobbying has morphed into "sponsor a senator" activities, since no one can afford to run without them. And pharmas are biiig sponsors.

Fuck man. I guess what I'm saying is that there is no answer. Small government just means we get bent over by uncontrolled corporations, big government as it stands is too far in the pocket of corporations to effectively trust-bust, or regulate, anyway.

>Implying corruption is exclusive to the government
As if the fact that so many corporations basically form a fucking line to bribe government officials isn't a testament to how corrupt they are
#18 - anon (08/25/2016) [-]
...because they will have a free hand to do anything they want, without having to bribe government officials. No corruption, full on feudalism.

Thats not a bad idea really....

I wonder if you could do that in china or someplace...

All that does is shrink the need for parties of interest to circumvent laws.

Now you have a smaller government and you still have corruption. We need anti corruption laws more than anything.

#22 - gotthembarrels (08/25/2016) [-]
And what exactly are laws going to do? I am legit curious what you think a law would do to people who clear disregard laws.

it's less having to do with how big government is, and more to do with how profitable it's become to actually -be- in government. If the personal wealth and income of a politician could be better controlled, we'd have less corruption.

yes because companies are well known for not being corrupt and not taking advantage of small governments.
#30 - thermobil (08/25/2016) [-]
But companies can´t force you to buy their products, without legislation they can only offer you services for compensation and it´s your decision if the stay in business or go bankrupt.

#42 - lanfearandthecup (08/25/2016) [-]
its not that simple though, look at America now a days, sure companies come and go but things like tobacco mega conglomerates and big pharma DONT GIVE A FUCK if YOU buy there shit or not, because no matter what someone else is going to. if is as simple as that for normal products such as cereal, paper towels, some food, shit like that, but those aren't the corrupt ones man.
#75 - thermobil (08/26/2016) [-]
Well, the only thing you can do is to "vote" with your money, sure some big businesses will have customers even if you personally don´t buy their products, but you can´t force other people to behave the way you want (that is what the state does). I say drop all the limits and legislation and let the free market balance itself. It will take some time, but true free markets always seek some kind of equilibrium. Generally big businesses are afraid of the small ones simply because they can to things for less money, therefore their products are cheaper. Also, when you are small-time enterpreneur you can find rises and falls of demand much quicker and you are generally much more adaptable to changes in the market. Now imagine how much easier it would be for small businesses to survive if they wouldn´t sift their way through god knows how many pages of tax code and "supporting" legislation.
In modern information age it´s laughably easy to tell your opinions to the masses. You don´t like particular company? Do a video on it, post your facts and fact-based opinions a post it on Youtube, or do a couple of tweets or whatever.

they take advantage of large governments too yknow.
#26 - revelent (08/25/2016) [-]
That's part of the point. Shrinking the government wouldn't solve or even help diminish the corruption problem, because it'd just make it easier for companies to take advantage of it.

What if the product is food and water?
#74 - thermobil (08/26/2016) [-]
And do you have only one shop where you can buy those? Can they do what they want? It´s the same old dilemma Walmart vs. Mom&Pops shops, some people prefer one other another. The thing in that example is that state legislation make it much harder for small businesses to stay in black numbers than it is for big businesses.

Large govs include large public sector. No rich corporate owners to bribe about anything.

Federal authority versus states rights has been argued since the inception of this nation, and never has states authority seemed more enticing. I get that some areas are more liberal than others, but they shouldnt be allowed to cram that shit down the throat of everyone else in other areas.
